A tiny risk of be­ing bit­ten by a deadly snake but the food along the way is su­per

Of­ten one gets an un­ex­plained urge to trot through the Aus­tralian bush. The down­side is snakes, spi­ders, ticks, leeches, wild an­i­mals, tents, bully beef, brack­ish wa­ter and a shovel to dig your own toi­let. Luck­ily you can walk the wide brown land’s most spec­tac­u­lar World Her­itage Area and stay in ex­cel­lent ac­com­mo­da­tion and have an in­spired, three-course din­ner with equally in­spired Tas­ma­nian wine in a place with in­side toi­lets. Tas­ma­nia’s Cra­dle Moun­tain Huts will only take $3100 each from you and your loved ones for the 65km, six-day walk. There is a chance you will see a 1.8-me­tre tiger snake. Have not much fear, they gen­er­ally don’t like peo­ple but if they take a lik­ing to you, their venom is neu­ro­toxic, caus­ing some cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem prob­lems, mus­cle dam­age and kid­ney fail­ure.
